Here’s some news that will touch your heart. Each year St. Francis Winery & Vineyards honors their namesake, St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis was known for his love for all creatures. Each year for the past 10 years, the winery honors his feast day, October 4, with an event called the Blessing of the Animals. This past year the Blessing of the Animals event raised over $2,000 for the Sonoma Humane Society. On this day the winery awards a dog with the title of Winery Dog of the Year. The title went to a 1.5 year old Great Dane named Jackamoe or "Jack" as he likes to be called by his close friends.
If you find you and your furry four legged companion in Sonoma next October, check the In the News page on St. Francis Winery website. Admission is free to all, including the two legged creatures. Wine and goodies are available as well as pet friendly vendors. All proceeds go to the Sonoma Humane Society.
